Explanation and Illustration
Tom Bevan, writing on RCP does a pretty good job of explaining why Democrats have been losing national elections of late—projection, poor focus, poor campaigns, and poor candidates are what I get out of the piece.

And it seems to me that this Slate piece by Michael Kinsley provides a fairly useful illustration of Bevan's points. Reading the latter, I couldn't help but think, "Man, does George Will know how to push Michael Kinsley's buttons, or what?"

Two interesting pieces, though—so read them.
